Appointment Notes...

I have been having problems with brides running late or not showing up for appointments. I am just letting you all know that I only have one dressing room, and my time on weekends especially is very tight, so I am squeezing everyone in 1 1/2 hour slots. If you are late or early, you run into other brides, etc. I am allowing 15 minute grace periods and then I am afraid you will lose your appointment. Rescheduling is very hard, as I have so few weekend slots open.

Showing up early would not be a bad idea, There are plenty of things to do around here if you find yourself with time to kill.

Thanks so much!!

Jennie :)

About US!

Recently we have had clients that have wanted to know more about the owners of Magnifique Boutique. Besides the "about us" information on our website. Well here is some fun and random information about the owners of a little boutique that is Magnifique!!!

Scott and I got married in September of 2008 at Stonehedge Gardens in Hood River. We were only engaged for about 4 months because Scott proposed to me in April of 2008 so my dress shopping and wedding planning was all done very quickly however, our wedding was more than we could have ever imagined. You will see pictures from our wedding in the boutique. We have the pictures here because we are currently remodeling our 1904 Victorian farmhouse located in West Linn that we purchased in March of 2008. The house is still in the remodeling phase so we can relate to all of you that are in the same building boat.

When we are not working at the boutique or at our house we love to spend time with our fabulous friends and family. We enjoy all that Portland has to offer from camping and boating in the summer to skiing and snowboarding in the winter. We also try to work out when we can and you will find me taking classes at 24 hour fitness. Along with designing Street of Dreams Homes Scott also works part time at the airport Home Depot. (It's his favorite place anyway so he may as well just work there).

We have 2 dogs a Siberian Husky named Jynx and a Beagle named Piper for the time being they are our babies and sometimes you will find them baking in the sun on the deck of the boutique. We are a dog friendly bridal boutique which may sound crazy but, it works for us. The dogs are clean and stay out of the dress area. We also enjoy dancing we have taken classes in Swing, Lindy hop and numerous country dances. When we can talk our friends into it you might find us at Bushwhackers on the dance floor. So now you know a little more about us and we look forward to helping you find that dress of your dreams or plan that perfect event.
